Switching Between Open Programs and Files
Two programs are running at the same time—Excel and Word. The taskbar contains but-
tons for both programs. When you have two or more programs running or two files
within the same program open, you can use the taskbar buttons to switch from one pro-
gram or file to another. The button for the active program or file is darker. The employees
at Recycled Palette often work in several programs at once.
To switch between Word and Excel files:
1. Click the Microsoft Excel – Book1 button on the taskbar. The active program
switches from Word to Excel. See Figure 3.
